I've taken my 3 kids a couple of times now, and it's such a great location along the Sonoma Coast. Not too many other areas that you can be deep into a wooded forest type area, then pop out on the cliffs over looking the vast Pacific Ocean. Great hiking, clean, and easy access to many other beach spots in either direction. Just a heads up, the roads to get here are winding and slow, but the scenery is worth it. Also, for what it's worth, this is a Northern California coastal experience, if you want swarms of people in bikinis sun bathing and walking along miles of flat perfect sand, then check out Southern California. Love this spot and will continue to visit.
